Packers Expected To Release William Henderson

Veteran fullback William Henderson doesn't expect to return to the Green Bay Packers next season.

Henderson issued a statement late yesterday on the Web site of W-B-A-Y television in Green Bay, where he appeared as a regular guest, saying he expects the team to release him and thanking fans for their support.

Henderson's agent, James Williams, did not immediately return a telephone message left by The Associated Press.

A Packers spokesman says the team hasn't made any personnel moves today.

Henderson's departure would leave Brett Favre as the only member of the 1996 Super Bowl championship team still playing for the Packers.
